Sandalwood drug case: CCB likely to seek extension of Ragini Dwivedi's custody
As Loom Pepper, a Nigerian drug peddler allegedly named the actress as his client, Ragini's custody in CCB may get extended as officials may subject her to more inquiry to know her role. According to reports, the actress did not cooperate with the investigation till now.
Bengaluru: With five days custody of actress Ragini Dwivedi coming to an end on September 11, the CCB sleuths may seek an extension as they are yet to probe her based on the conversation between her aide Ravishankar and a drug peddler.
The CCB is said to have cracked a code between Ravishankar and Loom Pepper, a Nigerian drug peddler. Ravishankar, another accused Prashanth Ranka and the actress were said to have abused drugs.
The actress has always denied her role in the drug mafia but the officials have digital evidence against her. It is also reported that Ragini did not cooperate with the investigation and always tried to divert from the topic.
The CCB cops may request the court to extend Ragini's custody.
Meanwhile, the actress has changed her lawyer and a new advocate may represent her and move a bail application before the court.
